The ultimate Vantage Le Mans
In 1999 Aston Martin launched the ultimate Vantage, named the Vantage Le Mans, in celebration of the company's victory at Le Mans in 1959. Only 40 cars were built with a massive 600 bhp and 600 lb-ft of torque, the highest output of any Aston Martin and, indeed, any production car at the time.
Visible modifications included a restyled bonnet with twin air intakes, a distinctive blanked off radiator grille, larger side vents and magnesium alloy wheels. The brakes were up rated to 6 piston AP Racing discs and calipers. The interior wood was replaced with brushed metal panels and larger, racing style rev counter.
